You may have seen a WHNT News 19 report about sharks on Alabama’s Gulf Coast pop up in your Facebook news feed yesterday or today.
We love it when you share our news stories on social media, but that one is actually from last year. It was dated June 8, 2014. Many people shared it on Facebook, and several of us saw it in our news feeds as well. The old report caused some concern and confusion, so the 2014 story now links here, to this update.
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Tourism officials even contacted WHNT News 19 about the story, saying they were hearing concerns. They stress the beaches are open, and they want you to keep your plans to visit Alabama’s Gulf Coast.
